SUE SWIFT

HEAD OF BOOKS AND ADAPTATION

Sue joined Kudos in 2009 to bring in outstanding material from the world of books. Recent book-based Kudos productions include APPLE TREE YARD, an adaptation of Louise Doughty’s powerful adult thriller for the BBC, starring Emily Watson and Ben Chaplin; the much-loved ITV crime series GRANTCHESTER, starring James Norton and Robson Green, soon to return for its fourth series. And coming to ITV next year is the six-part female-led emotional thriller DEEP WATER, based on the bestselling Windermere novels of Paula Daly.

 

After an early career in print journalism, then as editorial director of a magazine publishing company, Sue became Literary Adviser to the UK Film Council, and Head of Literary Acquisitions at Material Entertainment, before joining Kudos.
